Queenswood Road Nature Reserve
Formerly known as the Queenswood Road Nature Reserve, the reserve occupies about. 0.22 hectares.
Habitats on site include:
- Scrub – mainly bramble and small trees which are great for attracting nesting birds
- Mixed native / non-native woodland – attracting invertebrates as well as providing cover and nesting sites for birds and other wildlife
- Semi-improved neutral grassland – attracting many invertebrates, as well as providing cover for reptiles and amphibians
- Tall herb layer – again attracting butterflies and providing cover for wildlife
- Standing water –providing a habitat for frogs, newts, dragonflies and other insects
As part of our site management plans, staff, volunteers and co-workers at Sydenham Garden have established new wildlife habitats, thinned encroaching scrubland and laid new paths to improve site access.
We have also built a bird hide, created a large wildlife pond and constructed a wooden bridge to link the nature reserve with the community garden.
